2015 Atomic Highlights

Wow! What a year 2015 has been for atomic :) I browsed through almost all of our photos (I have way too many pictures of furniture) last night and felt such a wide range of emotions. Here are the events I remember most... The first Adrian Pearsall Sofa we upholstered and how amazing it looked in it's new home! (Jan 2015) Debating on whether or not we should expand into the building on Patton Ave, the month of moving endless amounts of furniture, painting the entire space and waiting for all or our inspections and permits to go through (Feb...

Why be a furniture dealer?!

Why did I choose to be a Furniture Dealer? It takes a certain person to really love it. Does it involve making a profit, of course but money is definitely not my motive. I appreciate the icons that came before me - Ray and Charles Eames or Adrian Pearsall (a few of my favorites). Their designs are the perfect marriage of form and function. Now that Todd and I are designing/building furniture I hope one day we will inspire others with our designs by encouraging others to create. Another reason I love what I do is because I really enjoy meeting all...

Florida Trip

We left our sweet little town of Asheville last week to deliver some furniture to Miami Florida. We of course couldn't help ourselves from picking the entire way back. In the 5 days we spent on our way to and from Florida we experienced an overwhelming amount of hospitality from our customers, other dealers, and friends that welcomed us into their homes. The couple we delivered the furniture to were so understanding of our late arrival time due to traffic, heavy amounts of rainfall, and our complications with our running lights on the trailer. They booked us a hotel for...

New Home - Part 2

  We've been in our new home for 25 days now and I have to say, I'm loving it!!! It's definitely been a lot of work trying to finish up the house while managing the shop but somehow, someway we are getting by :)  So what have we done since I last posted?? We painted the kitchen and bedroom, installed all new light fixtures in the kitchen and hung up more artwork. The kitchen is still missing something but I haven't decided what it is yet...Maybe a small island or cart? We have 3 spoiled dogs so they take up...

On Call

(Photo Credit- Kelly Giarrocco) I tell people all of the time that I feel like we are basically "on call". No we are not saving lives like doctors but when we find furniture that is worth picking up we have to hit the road! We have a very hard time scheduling anything. I don't know how many times I've had to cancel plans with friends or family. For example, we were in the midst of cranking out a lot of new product for tomorrow when Todd told me we needed to hit the road to pick up some new items....
